"You Got To Me" as written by and Michael Maida Kara Dioguardi....
All my life I've been looking for a rainbow
I was startin' to think that I was colour blind
And you walked in the room and there's my pot of gold
And I can just leave everything behind

All this time I've been running 'round in circles
I was startin' to think that I would lose my mind
But you came along and pulled me from the danger
Now it's a merry-go-round and I don't want to get off this ride

[Chorus]
You got to me without a warning
You got to me when I had nowhere to go
And now I see the color every night, in black and white
I can't remember how I used to be
And I can't get out of bed, but I can dream

You got to me, you got to me

All good things must come to those who wait for
Every good reason there's gotta be a very good rhyme, yeah
And all my life I've been tryin' to find an answer
Now I know why I had to take my time

[Chorus]

You got to me

Maybe it was just the way you held me
When my world was hangin' by a string
Maybe it was just the way you knew me
When I didn't know myself when everything felt like hell

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentA guy is going about his life, confused on what to do, kind of dead in the water, not knowing where to go, waiting and longing for someone special.

    Than a girl suddenly crosses his path, and starts talking to him, and she's unlike any other girl (pot of gold). And everytime he's with her, he doesn't want it to end (merry-go-round). He started to get feelings for her without warning, unexpectedly. She showed him a new light to life and helped him find things out about himself that he didn't even know.

    She got to him like no other girl, he's impressed because no other girl has been able to bring this out in him.

    General CommentYes.

    I like this song. Rex's voice is sick. And I think the line:

    All my life I've been lookin' for a rainbow.
    I was starting to think that I was color blind

    Means that he was looking for happiness in life, but couldn't find it.
